... restart the cycle and put my new ring in. I skipped my period I think because my cycle is now off from not being regulated from that month without it. A week later than when I should have started I put a new one in and three days later had unprotected sex. Is it normal to skip a period and will the ring work even though I already skipped one period?
If you haven't had one in when you put it in you have to wait 7 days until you're protected. Its like starting over. If you had no protection when for a month, were you using condoms? Have you done a pregnancy test?
If you used Plan b then that is the reason your periods are irregular. Plan b is notorious for delaying the period following the dose. Plan b is a large blast of hormones and it will mess up your cycle for a month or two. Go ahead and take a pregnancy test but it is most likely just the Plan b delaying your period.
